just went through. good morning from new york city. it's friday, december 7th, 2012. this is "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. you should always remember this is a day that lives in infamy and if you don't know why, ask your parents or your grandparents to explain. let's get right to my first reads of the morning. as the republican party picks up the pieces and searches for the next generation of leaders, one of the conservative movements most influential icons of late and inside the senate, south carolina's jim demint, stunned his colleagues by resigning to become a full-time political activist. in effect, the ceo of the conservative movement. just two years into his second term demint is leaving the senate to become president of the heritage foundation where he was greeted yesterday with a standing ovation. >> this literally feels like i just walked in the front door of my own house. this organization is in a position to do more to save our country than any organization that i'm aware of. >> before there was a tea party movement there was south carolina senator jim demint. he was a
writes this in "the new york times." republicans have to realize that they are going to cave on tax rates. the only question is what they get in return. do you agree? >> not necessarily at all, because i believe if you raise the base upon which the tax rate is applied, you can raise revenue and keep the rates where they are. >> explain that. let me stop you there. when you raise the base of which the tax rate is applied, explain what you mean. >> capping deductions so you can't use deductions to offset tax obligations. that creates more revenue but the rates stay the same. as erskine bowles commission can go down as much as from 35% to 29% at the upper level. the same thing ronald reagan and tip o'neill did in 1986. in 1986 the top marginal rate it was 70%. it was lowered to 28%. we can take that approach again. >> you know, you brought up the fact that you are in real est e estate. one of the items that will be on the table is the mortgage deduction and one of the kr criticisms that the white house had, for instance on the boehner plan, is there were no details there on deductions. how

in a new york hospital this morning where she is being treated for a blood clot discovered while doctors were checking her recovery from a concussion. robert bazell is nbc's chief science and health correspondent. he's at new york presbyterian hospital. bob, what can you tell us? >> reporter: well, chris, we can tell you that it's not exactly clear what is happening with secretary clinton's health. all we have is a statement from her office. the hospital isn't saying anything and the the hospital says that she had this blood clot that stemmed from the concussion and she's being treated with blood-thinning drugs. the problem is that usually when blood clots come from concussions, they can't be treated with blood clots. so, either it's not really related to the concussion and she's got a blood clot in her leg or something, or there's something else going on that we're not being told. and right now, we're just sort of seeking that clarification and hoping for the best as she's being observed, as they say, for the next couple of weeks -- excuse me, for the next couple days, to make sure she'

into a panicked strategic route in january. "the new york times" points out that even if republicans agree to the president's key demand that the top tax rates return to the clinton era level, it would only be a quarter of the $1.6 trillion the white house is demanding leaving battles and limits on deductions and exemptions and estate and gift taxes all for another day. then there are other political minefields of entitlement cuts in spending. by the way, by choosing to make his fiscal cliff pitch in michigan, the president is stepping into the fierce battle over worker rights in that state. they are becoming the 24th state for right to work state. the bill pushed through by the republican controlled house and senate in michigan, the daimler detroit michigan plant, the white house came out against the move sighing president obama has long opposed right-to-work laws and continues to oppose them now. by the way, a quick little aside on this disagreement among conservatives about what tactic boehner should take "the journal" versus kristol. this gives boehner more room, more power, more of an

basketball game there and it's across the street from the studios in new york. stalemate and gridlock. call it what you will, but with washington five days away from falling off the cliff, had this become the new normal the senior editor from the national view. welcome and thank you so much. i top the play a cliff that we had yesterday on the report. it was interesting to see where the crisis has gone. >> it's not a cliff, but more like a slope. it's on january 20th. it's retro actively with the spending and i don't think there was any great impact. not too much. >> we had this two months back and forth. if we don't hit this january 1st deadline, the minds would be right and the world is collapsing. chicken little full on. there seems to be this conventional wisdom that we can get into january and all the way to the 10th. is that practical? >> if you are looking at signs that there is not going to be a deal, both sides are talking about how it would be. the only thing that forces a deal to be made before the deadline is if the marks went crazy and it was a sign that something had to be done

for president they will not die down until she announces she's running or not running. new york governor andy cuomo was asked what he thought about clinton running for president. here's what he said. >> a long way away. we just elected a president and they want to talk about the next election. no doubt that she is incredibly popular. she has great experience and there is going to be all sorts of speculation about her political future and she is the person that is going to make the decision. >> by the way, perfect reasonably response. what i was stunned at so many people took that and said, cuomo won't endorse hillary 2016. guys, that was a pretty, that was your standard response of what you're supposed to say at a moment like that when you're a politician. >>> hawaiian senator is in the hospital to regulate his oxygen intake. he has to remain in the hospital for observation. his office said he was misdiagnosed with lung cancer in the '60s and had a large part of his left lung removed. recently his doctors have suggested he begin using oxygen. the 88-year-old senator hopes to return to capitol
hhamto binghamton, new york, and aurora theater. they aren't concentrated in any one part of the country, not confined to any particular setting. shootings have occurred at a pennsylvania hospital, a miami funeral home, a soccer tournament in delaware and a mall in oregon. 85 people died in those 14 incidents. many of them make news for a day or two. then they fade. although some incidents are big enough to prompt action a little bit. after the virginia tech massacre, we learned the gunman's history showed he had treated for mental issues for years. in response, then governor tom cain signed new mental health reform into law giving the sate more latitude to commit mentally ill people who pose a danger and commenting $42 million to the state's facility. two years later, the state found no increase in the number of people committed and multiple cuts to the funding. earlier this year, in colorado, an attack exposed how easy it is to purchase ammunition online. the shooter wag able to bypass federal background checks and buy 3,000 rounds for a pair of glock handguns and 300 shotgun shells, a
. joining me now john harwood cnbc's chief washington correspondent and political writer for the "new york times" and nancy cook, economics correspondent for the national journal. okay. wow. a big night last night. john, let's talk about the impact on the economy. this is not the debt ceiling. this is not sort of our credit rating will immediately drop. but wall street seemed to have thought for a while that, okay. they're going to talk and talk. >> so did i. >> and i did too. a deal is in the offing. now that a deal may not be in the offing, what's the impact on the economy, broadly? >> well, we saw the market futures go down last night. we expect a down day in the markets today. the decline hasn't been quite as steep as some people expected. but you do see a potential hit for confidence if it's not worked out. it's not set that we're not going to -- that we're going over the cliff. in fact, i think there is a significant chance that either a medium deal or a very minimalist deal just kicking the can down the road for a couple months passes. but i do think that the more times we have thes
jersey and new york, the communities affected by hurricane sandy. the house is reportedly looking at a plan that would only provide about $27 billion in aid. that's less than half of what the senate passed over the weekend. they went for the $60 billion aid package and certainly things to get done. remember, new year's eve obviously the fiscal cliff deadli deadline. thursday at noon the deadline for the current congress and then they won't have to restart the clock on pending legislation. >> so i know -- >> i'm glad you mentioned that. let's look bigger picture. this is set to be the least productive congress in history. 219 bills in this congress. >> right. >> the next lowest level was 333 bills during the '90s. so tremendously unproductive congress. as you mentioned, the new one will be sworn in and not looking a whole lot different. is this the new normal, the do-nothing congress? >> i think until we can sort of clear out of these fiscal issues, whether that's tonight or tomorrow, whether that's mid march, it is very difficult for other issues to rise to the to because of the n
is like barack obama and mitt romney -- >> that's right. in yonkers, new york, the worst. >> hardest this year and you were talking about it is breaking through and your ad that broke through virally -- >> yes. >> big bird. >> without any money behind it. >> you never spent -- never aired on actual television. >> it did. it was part of our rotation. just out of there in earned media, 5 million people went to look at it. >> here's the most viral ad of 2012. >> together, we can do this. we can take this country back. ♪ i am america ♪ one voice united we stand ♪ i am america >> there it is! does it get any better? >> it was a great ad and same time -- >> it was -- >> no desire whatsoever to be president. >> no path. >> it was like this is fascinating if you're not trying to be a serious presidential candidate. >> or just have fun. >> it's not just smoking. i'm anti-staff staffer. i think we have to -- >> you won't get -- >> no tv ads for any candidates i have worked for. >> gosh. >> holding him to that. >> advice for other staffers. >> all right. gaggle sticking with us. we have d
the conservative movement type here in d.c. and members of congress themselves. and the "new york times" today talks about the meeting up on the hill where boehner has so much support. >> right. >> among his own conference and yet you talk to heritage or club for growth or anybody like that and they'll say we don't want a deal. they're getting to the point where they don't want a deal. >> but wait a minute. there is a third group. look at bobby jindal. how about what jindal said? who is no moderate. let's not pretend the guy tries to say he is a moderate and he said hum. apparently the republican position is protect the rich to cut old people. >> right. exactly. so you're finding everyone now squeezing in their message and trying to push boehner in a direction toward making a move. i think boehner actually has controlled this pretty well given the pitfalls that he has in front of him. and i think that basically you've got his caucus now saying, we're with you in this fight. we'll follow you through the door. that's a good spot for him to be in. >> so what is the white house -- do they just wai
